Today I’d like to share with you a new limited edition fragrance from Beyonce, the Beyonce Rise Sheer Eau de Parfum; 
What They Say:
A sparkling, fresh floral, Beyonce Rise Sheer is a lighter, fresher version of the alluring BEYONCÉ RISE scent. Featuring notes of citrus, orchid and blonde woods, it offers all of the gold sophistication of RISE with a fresh and alluring attitude.
RRP: $69 (100ml) – Available from Myer and Select Pharmacies
What I Say:
The original Beyonce Rise perfume was inspired by the singers on-stage persona, as well as by female empowerment and finding the inner strength that makes women so beautiful. The new limited edition Rise Sheer, is somewhat similar, although naturally a lot lighter and fresher, which personally I do prefer.
It contains:
  • Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, Iced Basil Sorbet
  • Middle Notes: Gold Symphony Orchid, White Peony, Hydroponic Jasmine
  • Bottom Notes: Blonde Woods, Sheer Musk, White Amber 
I love that it includes lemon, as zesty scents are amongst my favourites, and also that you can detect notes of jasmine and peony. It also contains mush and amber, which I have to admit I often find too heavy for my liking, but luckily that is not the case with the Rise Sheer, a the citrus and floral notes are more dominant.
As is usually the case with light fragrances, it doesn’t last all day, and I do find that I have to reapply by the middle of the day. But the light scent is perfect for everyday casual use, and in all honestly, would probably be better suited for spring and summer and not autumn and winter as we are not heading towards here in Australia.
The fragrance comes in a tall glass bottle with a gold lid, and it is supposed to symbolise the ‘Rise’ of Beyonce’s career as a singer. Unfortunately the gold lid is made from plastic, which I do feel is a little tacky, and makes it feel a little less luxurious.
However, all in all this is a lovely fresh scent, and as I generally prefer fresh and light scents, I consequently also much prefer this Rise Sheer over the original Rise scent.
If you too like light scents, then I highly recommend that you check it out sooner rather than later, as it is a limited edition.

  1. This sounds really lovely. I wasn't a huge fan of the original myself but I might go and give this one a sniff. It's a shame about the lid! xx

  2. I have this perfume as well and I actually really like it! I've been reaching for it pretty much everyday. I like that it's lighter, yet still really feminine and sultry.
